Colleagues:

I'm resending this email because I neglected to change the subject line.
This is important for the archive. My apologies for the extra noise!

Here's the original message ...

Only messages supporting this CfC have been received. It is therefore
agreed as a consensus decision of APA, and our consensus comment will
now be forwarded.

The head of thread for this CfC can be found at:

Best,

Janina
